Digitize

  1. 1. DIGITIZEA simple application to digitize books to create fullfledged e-books which will be the norm in the near future.Thus preserving the existing knowledge as well asmaking it easily accessible . As well as proof readingcontent for websites and ecommerce sites.
  2. 2. THE SHIFT TOWARDS DIGITAL Likely increase in demand for e-books with a surge of handheld devices like tablets (Ipad) and Readers (Kindle) The reading experience on such devices is no longer eye straining and is getting closer and closer to actual physical book reading . Special efforts by giant companies like Apple to transition from the physical books to digital e-books. Considerable reduction in the cost associated with creation of books for publication houses. Low cost versions for developing countries will go a long way in spreading education. Huge amount of data is created everyday by websites in the form of content/e-commerce.
  3. 3. THE IDEA: DIGITIZE Digitize: A application that would allow people to convert data from scanned jpeg files of book pages to word based text files. If not for mainstream use than atleast to create low cost versions for distribution in developing countries where access to books is still a dream for some people. Completely cloud based, for speedy processing and lesser dependence on a single device (Mobile) for access Each user will receive random pages that they need to type out and upload to the cloud. They can sync for more pages as per their work speed and convenience. A performance linked incentive system will be in place that will determine their payout as well as Group.
  4. 4. Client Checked andService Provider Approved (Digitize) DataRaw data & Quality User ControlSubmitted content Users
  5. 5. AVERAGE USER PROFILE Not highly skilled Basic ability to type, read and understand English. Willingness to familiarize oneself with technology, as there is a slight learning curve with respect to understanding the basic features such as logging in to personal account, syncing etc.
  6. 6. PAYOUT STRUCTURE Will be directly linked to performance:  5 or less mistakes per page (depending on word count of an average page) = $X  10 or less mistakes per page = $X-n (n being a suitable deduction from the first case)  10 or more mistakes per page = Rejected page hence no pay.
  7. 7. INCENTIVE STRUCTURE The users will score certain incentives based on their accuracy history. They may fall under any of these Groups. Quality Control: These will be experts and will have a perfect accuracy record. They are normal users whose good work has been recognized and now they perform Quality checks on others work. This will be a rotating positions with a fixed period. Experts: These will be users with a very good accuracy record and the ones whose work requires minimum intervention from QC. They will be paid at a higher rate than users. They will eventually move to QC Users: These will be all the people using the service.
  8. 8. PROOF READ This is a another application of Digitize, used for proof reading content. Huge amount of data is churned out everyday on the web ranging from articles to website content to press releases to product information on ecommerce sites. The idea being to root out basic mistakes that are bound to creep in when large amount of data is created. (Mismatch of titles and content, spelling mistakes etc) The payout/incentive structure will be the same as mentioned earlier.
  9. 9. ACCESSIBILITY Since the majority of the users will be in developing nations, there are certain issues that may arise as far as the hardware (Smartphones) is concerned. The solution is to take a community based approach.  Providing a certain number of phones to a village/community for public access.  No individual ownership with the users. Owned by the service provider/sponsor.  Limited time access to the phone everyday /user  Possibility to purchase the device on an financing model after proven success (Money earned) using the service.  Benefit: Access to more people with limited number of devices.
